Barcode 22up - generates a list of selected barcodes which can be useful for quickly scanning all slabs you may be receiving or transferring to a different facility.

Barcoded Locations - generates individual barcodes for all locations within your facility, with each barcode displaying the designated location information

Hide Barcode Fields

You can choose to hide these fields from the barcode: dimensions, lot #, job #, order #, and vendor. To hide the fields, add them as comma-separated values in the "HiddenFields" property for the barcode reports in the "Report Configurations" tab.

When troubleshooting issues reading bar codes using the mobile app, one possible issue is that the barcodes are cut off and you may need to reprint them to make sure all of the barcode is visible. Check with your account administrator to determine if this is happening.

If you have issues with the mobile app not reading bar codes, we would recommend getting one of the scanners below.
